Picked up a Gateway GP-6 system (manufactured August 2000) that had been sitting at a local second hand store since weeks for 30 Euro. It included speakers with the wrong power supply, and whoever removed the hard disk from the system also ripped off two connectors on the motherboard and two from the front panel connections 😒 . The motherboard connectors are sound-related and probably fixable (nothing looks really broken). The front panel will require some soldering.
I'm actually not too worried about the motherboard because it probably is a rather shitty Intel microATX R1 or R2 board (Socket 370 board that can't take processors faster than 600 MHz or so) with a passively cooled Celeron processor, even though it also should have a on-board AWE 64 sound card.
The system included two optical drives: a rather beaten up LG 32 speed, and a little used looking Philips CD writer with a rather neat design. I tried both in my P2 system, and of course the beaten up drive works and the other one refuses to see discs 🤣 . I write "see discs" because it doesn't even attempt to read them, it simply spits them straight out again. Since there's something rattling around in the drive, I suspect there might be some tab broken off internally.
Also included is a floppy drive, floppy cable, two IDE cables, Sweex 10/100 Mbit network card, Rockwell 56K modem, and two IBM/Infineon 64 Mb 133 MHz SDRAM sticks. Still have to test all of those.
The case is pretty good though, and certainly period correct. Which is good because a system that is in the mail comes with a nice motherboard but a crap case. The only bad thing is the power supply location, right next to the motherboard instead of above it.
Oh, and the case has a sticker with a Windows 98SE key on it.
Maybe 30 Euro was a bit much for this all.
